Disaster in Alabama, Disaster in Our World

It has been many days since a blog has been posted here. The last one dealt with an extremely emotional and painful subject for this writer. I appreciate the positive responses.

Since that blog was posted, my life has turned into a nightmare. It seems to never end and I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel yet; hopefully when I do, it won't be a train! The massive super-cell tornadoes that hit Alabama and other parts of the United States on Wednesday have left most without electricity, many without homes or any treasures, and some with the devastating loss of loved ones. My prayers and thoughts are with these fellow Alabamians and Americans as we, once again, pull together to help one another in tough times.

In my county alone, 238 homes were totally destroyed and 98 are uninhabitable. We lost eight precious lives here. Across the state, so far, we have lost 250 people who had lives, families, and were part of their respective communities. The affects this storm has and will have in the coming days, weeks and months are far-reaching.

In my personal situation, after the electricity is restored; my life will not ever be the same anyway. Even though no damage has been done to my home, to my life is otherwise but it is not attributable to the storm. It is from a totally different type of storm; one that I wouldn't wish on anyone.

God bless you all. I leave you with this scripture:

2 Thessalonians

6. "Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels. In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power. When he shall be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day."

Come Lord Jesus come, quickly!
